We are getting close to the so called peak of oil and this will result in a shortage of oil and therefore oil products. We can assume that the oil industry will get in decline, therefore we should think about the heritage that the oil industry will leave behind. An iconic element of the petrol industry is the oil storage tank. We can knock these...

Land scarcity is increasing and therefore one of the main challenges for renewable energy in the future is ‘physical space’. While renewables need a lot of space compared to conventional energy sources, and the competition for space is already increasing (food production, housing etc.), leading to higher land costs and opposition. Public...

Fascicle shear is theoretically a mechanism by which skeletal muscles lengthen. Existing ultrasound based techniques allow measurement of muscle architecture parameters, but not the quantification of shear strain. In this study, an algorithm that tracks the shear strain from ultrasound images using a continuum representation of the muscle was...

An acetabular revision is a very challenging intervention, due to moderate to severe bone deficiencies and poor bone quality. Current solutions for this intervention are associated with inconsistent and unreliable clinical outcomes. This leads to substantial complications, including implant migration and loosening. These complications are, among...

Due to microbial activities, the anaerobic degradation of organic matter happens in the sediments and leads to considerable gas production. Especially for low flow areas gas production is more easily fostered. To prevent the potential problems caused by gas production from the riverine sediments, this study focuses on magnitude of gas formation...
